Also discussed was illegal dumping and dog fouling on the hills. Tidy towns, FAS and TUS were complimented on their work. Plans for 2014 include more colour and biodiversity for the Hills and adjacent areas and perhaps the planting of a number of new hedgerows. The area next to St. Johns famine graveyard was mentioned as a local interest. The relocation of the pylon was also discussed.
